The awards just keep piling up for the 2016 Cadillac Escalade. Having already been named a Consumer Guide Best Buy for 2016, the sixth-generation Escalade has also earned the title of Most Satisfying Luxury SUV in AutoPacific’s 2016 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.

Overall, the Escalade received a score of 810, which was the best Vehicle Satisfaction Award (VSA) score in history, thus earning it the President’s Award. This prestigious award is reserved for the vehicle that is able to break the previous high score.

Scores were determined via survey responses from people who own a 2015 or 2016 model year vehicle. More than 65,000 new vehicle owners participated in the most recent survey, which measures how satisfied each owner is with their new vehicle.

“The new Escalade continues to set new standards for sophistication in its market segment, and having its product substance recognized by customers is the highest form of praise,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “There are no more valuable opinions than those of our owners who drive Cadillacs every day.”

In order to win the title of Most Satisfying Luxury SUV, the Escalade had to score higher than competitors such as the Lincoln Navigator, Lexus LX 570, and Infiniti QX80.

Other GM models that were honored in AutoPacific’s 2016 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards include the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, which took the top spot in the sporty car category. Also, the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 received the best score in the light duty pickup segment.

It should also be noted, this is the first year that zero vehicles from either the Ford Motor Company or Fiat Chrysler Automobiles had a winning automobile.
